Exclamation New Plan -- Probe Tau Aquarii

Two stage design, simple 4FNC variety, no open-fin structure to build, but uses the Tau Zero nose cone for style.

Similar to, but not as complicated as, the (very) early Trailblazer design.

Length: 30.25"
Fin Span: 4.54"
Diameter: 1.04" (ST-10)
Weight: 1.73 oz

C6-0 / A8-5......1171'......24 FPS
C6-0 / B6-6......1465'......11 FPS
C6-0 / C6-7......2054'......14 FPS

All stacks require a 48" launch rod, 3/16" diameter, to reach safe flight velocity.
